The Voter ID Follies
We've all seen that Democrats will curry favor with any interest group, perverted or otherwise, if there's a ghost of a chance to win a few votes. The Dems biggest voting blocks, and source of campaign revenue are the Trial Lawyers Association and a corrupt and inefficient National Teacher's Association.
Now the Dems have teamed up for a big group cry over voter ID laws. They say that requiring voters to show ID is a violation of national voting laws. They go on to demonize these laws as a tool used by Republicans to disenfranchise poor voters.
I find this complaint the most frivolous yet from a group that thrives on listening to cry babies. To wit:
Arizona has been sued endlessly by Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder over Arizona's "strict" compliance with voter ID laws. I live in Arizona and have my voter packet sitting in front of me right now. Here's how "tough" it is to prove you're a resident in the state of Arizona:
List 1: (Photo ID) Any one is acceptable:
Valid Arizona Driver's License With Photo
Tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification
Valid United States federal, state, or local government issued identification
* Now if any of the above are too "tough" for you, all a voter need do is produce two of these non photo documents:
List 2 (two required)
A copy of your last utility bill
A Bank or Credit Union Statement with branches in Arizona
A Valid Vehicle Registration
An Indian Census Card
Your property tax statement
Vehicle Insurance Card
Any other document that matches your name and address
Wow! Isn't that tough? And yet the liberals scream and moan if a state makes any effort at all to insure you're a legal resident! Never mind that the same people that scream about having to show ID to vote have no qualms about showing their ID to buy liquor, cigarettes, apply for welfare or food stamps, or board an airplane. Asking these people to do even the smallest thing to prevent voter fraud is just too much to ask!
Could it be the liberals are bemoaning the fact that they might miss getting votes from illegal aliens?
Or are they regretting that they might lose a few of the "cry baby" votes? Hmmm.
